Colorado, the 22nd-largest state by population in the country, is known for its skiing resorts at Aspen, Vail, and Steamboat Springs. The state is obviously cold in winter. But it can also get quite warm during the summer months, and different parts of the state can have temperatures that vary more than 30 degrees from each other at any given time due to differences in altitude. Both air conditioning and heating systems are needed in many parts of the state.
In 1995, Home Energy magazine published an article called "Bigger is Not Better," which drew attention to the widespread problem of residential equipment oversizing. Even today in Colorado, heating and cooling equipment still tends to be oversized, according to the Built Green site Sizing Air-Conditioners. Heating systems were moderately oversized while air conditioning systems were nearly twice as large as needed.
HVAC contractors in Colorado are not licensed by the state, but rather at the local level.
Your HVAC contractor should be able to help you determine the appropriate size of your system. Should your HVAC contractor not be up to snuff, contact Colorado's Attorney General Consumer Line.
